“The only thing you absolutely have to know is the location of the library.” – Albert Einstein
This is especially true during finals week! The NHTI Learning Commons Library is offering extended hours and research assistance Zoom sessions mornings and evenings to help you prepare for your end-of-semester exams. The library will continue safety protocols and make any changes necessary to provide services during the pandemic.
Monday, Dec. 13, through Wednesday, Dec. 15, you can drop into Zoom sessions for help with research:
- From 11 a.m.-12 p.m., join Ellen Grimm, instruction and outreach specialist, at here.
- From 5:30-6:30 p.m., join Christie Cho, Learning Commons Library coordinator, here.
If these hours do not fit your schedule, you can set up a one-on-one research consultation here. If you have any questions, email us at [email protected], call us at 603-230-4028, or chat with us here.
During the Zoom sessions, you can get help navigating extensive databases in library guides that cover a range of disciplines from Arts, Humanities, and Communications to Health Sciences and Services and STEM. Our library staff can help you broaden your search or zero in on a particular element of interest.
Also during finals week, the library will be open additional hours: 7:30 a.m.–9:00 p.m., Monday through Wednesday; 7:30 a.m.-7 p.m. on Thursday; and 7:30 a.m.-4 p.m. on Friday. These hours are subject to change based on the COVID-19 situation on campus.
You can also peruse our online library catalog any time. Our shelves contain roughly 60,000 titles, with more than 6x that number available online.
The Learning Commons Library offers more than academic books, too. If you need a break from studying, we have DVDs, audiobooks, popular fiction, graphic novels, and board games on site. Visit here to read about the role of recreational reading in academic libraries and its connection to overall academic achievement. You also have access to thousands of videos and full-length films through the library’s Films on Demand streaming service.
No matter your studying style — individual desk, couch, window seat, private study rooms — you’ll find the right spot for you to concentrate! You’ll also find desk-top computers, laptops you can borrow for the day, and library staff ready to help with any question.
Libraries can be paradoxical places; you are alone with your thoughts and studying materials while surrounded by a community of learners. This can be an inspiring combination. You may also wish to discuss a topic with friends. That’s encouraged, while abiding by safety guidelines.
We look forward to assisting you in person and online!
And remember: “When in doubt, go to the library.” – J.K. Rowling
